Listen to Focalistic and Emtee’s New Song ‘Klippa’

Focalistic releases 'Klippa' featuring Emtee.

Earlier this week, Focalistic shared a snippet of a song in which he collaborated with Emtee. It was well received, and fans wanted the whole song out.


This morning, the Pitori-based rapper shared the full song. On "Klippa," Emtee and Focalistic drop a verse each, with the latter handling the hook over a trap instrumental.

Emtee has been consistently dropping great verses this year, fresh off his label woes and media attention.

Focalistic is one of the most exciting rappers coming up in South Africa. Repping Pretoria to the fullest, he raps in a combination of English and Pitori slang. His favorite catch phrase is "ase trap ke tes pina tsa ko kasi" (which loosely translates to "it's not trap, it's township music," and is the title of the project he released with Major League earlier this year.

The irony in this case is that the song is indeed a trap song, and features one of the faces of South African trap. Hopefully, it will all make sense in time. In the meantime, get familiar with Focalistic. Revisit Ase Trap Ke tse Pina Tsa Ko Kasi here and stream "Klippa" below and/or download it here.

Michaela Coel Joins the 'Black Panther' Sequel Cast

The upcoming film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is shaping up.

The sequel to the Oscar-winning Black Panther is only due to debut in July of 2022, but the production is well on its way.

The latest news out of the camp is that Michaela Coel, of I May Destroy You and Chewing Gum fame, has officially joined the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Her character details are still under wraps but according to Variety, Coel has already joined director Ryan Coogler at Atlanta's Pinewood Studios, where production started in late June.

Coel joins original cast members Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Florence Kasumba, and Angela Bassett all reprising their roles. Following the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman, Marvel reportedly chose not to recast the role of T'Challa.

"It's clearly very emotional without Chad," Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige mentions. "But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We're going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud."

Michaela Coel's highly-lauded 2020 series I May Destroy You — which she wrote, directed, produced and stared in — received four Emmy nominations.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled for wide release on July 8, 2022.
